Being a blogger, if there’s one thing that isn’t macaroons that go down a treat with the twenty-something style loving lady (or y’know just a chick that has a bit of a sweet tooth)- it’s a cake pop. On top of that, with pancake day being something that probably occurs about once a week in my calendar (I can’t help it) I thought I’d pop up something a little different to the classic crepe, but equally as yummy- and probably a little bit less naughty. The pancake recipe is based on a fluffy American pancake by Jamie Oliver with the pop idea coming from Pinterest, and my love for all things a little bit cute (come on, a pancake, on a stick guys)! The best part is that you can pop anything inside of them- blueberries just adding a little to the guilt-free factor, although I’m sure chocolate chips and marshmallows would be amazing!
You will need:
– A frying pan (heated a little)
– A whisk/electric whisk
– 3 eggs
– 115g plain flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 140ml milk
– A pinch of salt
2. Whisk the whites and pinch of salt until it forms stiff peaks, like a meringue mix (if you’re doing this by hand it could take a while- perseverance is key)!
4. Using a teaspoon, create small circle shaped pancakes in your heated pan and leave to brown for a couple of minutes (if that- keep checking at this stage)! You don’t want them to be undercooked, but equally not burnt.
6. Leave to cool for a few seconds and pop the sticks through the centre (these are definitely best warm) and lather with golden syrup, honey or lemon and sugar! Enjoy!
